The Yeah Yeah Yeahs returned triumphantly a few weeks ago with the gospel-infused 'Sacrilege' - previewing their new album 'Mosquito', a frontrunner for worst album artwork ever. Anyway, 'Sacrilege' now has a somewhat sacrilegious video, with Lily Cole strutting her stuff, thanks to French directors Megaforce. Soak it all in below.
'Sacrilege' manages to mix a fragility with a glorious effervescence, thanks largely to the incredible gospel vocals that kick in towards the track's finale and the production of Dave Sitek and Nick Launay. The Megaforce-directed video is engrossing, with elements of serial MIA collaborator Romain Gavras. Like Gavras' efforts, maybe not one for watching at work, thanks to the PG-13 sexytime on view.
'Mosquito' is scheduled for release on April 15th. Pre-order at amazon.co.uk Find more info at yeahyeahyeahs.com.
